Episode 8 begins with a training update on the week--and the GPS watch. So far, so good. Join me as I strive to run a slower week in anticipation of the race. I also had the privilege of being on The Runner's Round table, episode 34. I hope you enjoy listening to it.
Then you go with me as we run the Fun Fourth 10K in Greensboro, NC. This is the first 10K I have run in several years and I wanted to break 50 minutes. My official time was 49:11 and I felt great.
I mostly ran negative splits: 8:18, 8:08, 7:45, 7:55, 7:47; 9:19 (1.2). The day was warm, but not terribly hot at race time. While I did not place, I feel good about my effort and pacing. Also, check out the video below of the beginning of the race. If we knew we were going to post it, we might have been a little more creative! Anyway, it gives you a feel of the beginning of the race and you get to see yours truly (I'm the nervous one)!
Next week, I have a special treat for you. Hear about that on this episode as we bring things to a close. I will be sharing an interview with someone who introduced me to running years ago.
I trust your training is going well. Please send me an email at the link on this page. I want to know your thoughts about the program. Your feedback is so critical. Until next time.
Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,
The 20 Minute Runner
